Founded during the First Succession War along with five sister training battalions,[1][3] the Second Sakhara was a mixed regiment formed from the students and staff of the Sakhara Academy. The Second soon distinguished itself; fighting alongside its sister commands, the Second fought off three seperate attacks by the Third Sword of Light and three other veteran BattleMech regiments. This became known as the Days of Jousting at Dragons, and established Sakhara Academy's reputation.[3]

The First was the only Sakhara training battalion to survive the Second Succession War; the Second was a casualty of the War.[2]
